About

I treat patients who are experiencing distressing symptoms due to problems with their mood, difficulty thinking, poor concentration and difficulty focusing, or may be having problems in their personal relationships or occupational functioning. People who initially are less concerned with how a problem arose than with the current factors sustaining the problem and what is preventing them from trying to change it. People who want to learn coping techniques and problem-solving skills that can help them regain a sense of control in their life. Later in treatment, people may want to identify and understand the behavior, emotions, and ideas that contribute to their problems.
I am board certified in psychiatry. My approach to treatment is broad and varied, including behavioral therapy, gestalt therapy, existential psychotherapy and psychopharmacology. I am skilled in applying medication to problems caused or complicated by chemical imbalances. I am experienced in treating Attention Deficit Disorder, Bipolar Illness, Depression, Anxiety and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I employ a practical and goal-oriented approach. I am happy to share what I know and help facilitate the search for answers unique to each patient. I will use my skills in psychotherapy and medication management to help achieve these ends.
